Bears & Gladiators

Bears & Gladiators

This new tour starts with two nights in the Eternal City of Rome with plenty of sightseeing included followed by 5 nights in Pescasseroli in the heart of the little known Abruzzo National Park with visits to Monte Cassino and Lake Scanno.





Fly to Rome from a selection of UK regional airports and transfer to your hotel. In the evening enjoy dinner at a local restaurant (included).


Full day tour of Rome including the Colosseum, Trevi Fountains, Pantheon, the Spanish Steps and much more. Dinner in a local restaurant (included).


A morning tour of the Vatican with ‘beat the lines’ access to save you queuing. After lunch (not included) transfer to Pescasseroli. Journey time approx 2½ hours.


A day to remember walking in the Abruzzo National Park with the rangers. Hopefully you’ll see the Marsican brown bears which were once feared to be extinct and are only found in this region plus deer, wolves and wild boar. Light meal in a mountain refuge. In the evening join our excursion (included in the price) to hear the wolves howling!


Visit to Monte Cassino, the scene of the famous World War II battle in 1944. A chance to visit the War Cemeteries afterwards.


Little known Lake Scanno is a photographer’s dream and the area, according to the poet Edward Lear, is home to 'Italy’s most beautiful women'! We’ll leave you to make your own minds up on that one!

At leisure in Pescasseroli.

Morning transfer back to Rome for your flight home.
